Reverend Wendy Carr
Associate Vicar


As the associate vicar I have the privilege of walking with people through life and encouraging them on their journeying with Jesus. I have a particular heart for pastoral ministry and outreach and community engagement.

Before training for ministry in Cambridge I worked with children and families, my passion was to see children grow in confidence, to love life and to reach their full potential. 

Family life includes my husband Jason and our 2 children. We love the outdoors and exploring the countryside walking in and around Kent with our Labrador.

Andy Page
Youth & Children's Minister


I oversee and develop all the work we do with young people in the Parish, whether they're part of the church family or in the wider community of North Tonbridge. I've been involved in youth & children's ministry for nearly 20 years.

 I've been married to my wife Clare for just over a decade and have two sons called Ezra and Jesse. I enjoy music - being a keen drummer and vocalist - and also being in the outdoors walking, cycling, rock climbing, canoeing or trying to capture it in photographs.
  Sally Musson
Lay Minister

I work as a full-time Licenced Lay Minister (LLM) in the Parish of St Peter & St Paul. This involves preaching, leading worship, taking funerals, pastoral visits and a leadership role at St Saviour's Church. 

Beyond the Parish, I am a volunteer on the chaplaincy team at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Secretary to the Tonbridge Deanery Synod and a Vocations Adviser for the Diocese of Rochester. I am also licensed as an LLM to the parishes of Chiddingstone with Chiddingstone Causeway and serve as Governor at Chiddingstone C of E Primary School.

Emily Speed
Youth & Children's Work Assistant


I work alongside Andy to oversee, lead and develop the various groups we have across the parish for anyone under the age of 18. My passion is seeing the next generation of Jesus’ apprentices rise up in the knowledge they are loved and capable of amazing things in God’s name. I am formally trained in worship leading and am a graduate of the Worship Central Academy.
 
I come from the wonderful town of Croydon where I grew up. I spend my spare time singing, songwriting, travelling, crafting and searching for the best coffee. Feel free to ask me anything about my story, I’ll be happy to share!
   
     
     

Leadership

Paul White
Church Warden

As one of the parish wardens, there are a variety of CofE legal and formal things to do, but there are also a number of unexpected and surprising matters to deal with.  However, the best way to describe my role is that I am there to support our clergy, staff and volunteers as they preach the Gospel in whatever way I can.
I am also the chair of our Mission Action Group, a small committee of parishioners that oversees the links to our mission partners and makes charitable donations on behalf of the parish.

I am married to Ellerby and we have 2 teenage sons who are at school locally. 
  Adam Calvert
Church Warden

In my role as a church warden I seek to assist the vicar and church family in the decisions and activities of the church as we work together to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 
I am married to Pam and we have two daughters and three grandchildren. I moved to Tonbridge in 2018 and work in London.
 
     
Les 150x185    
Les Naylor
Parish Treasurer

My responsibility is to make sure we have the funds to support the day-to-day running of the church, and to manage the monies collected for specific purposes, like Youth and Children’s Work and church Refurbishment projects.  I am also treasurer of the Mission Action Group.

Outside of church I am a keen cyclist and volunteer each Friday at the YMCA refurbishing second-hand bikes to sell and raise funds.  As a walker I organise the Men’s Walking Group and have done a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. 

I am married to Ceri and we have three children and two grandchildren.  We both love gardening and walking together often involving bird-watching and plant spotting.

Yolanda Roberts
Vicar's PA and Administrator

My role as a PA is to provide administrative support to our Vicar. I also assist the Treasurer by handling the day to day administration of the finances.

It is wonderful to discover what life is like in the church during the week, with many members of our congregation devoting their time and love to our community.

I attend St Peter & St Paul with my husband Adrian and our teenage boys. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and also walking Cooper our Springer Spaniel.
  Jane Higgs
Administrator: Parish Church

As a lay member of the Staff Team, and also as a volunteer, it is a privilege to serve and contribute to the life of our Parish family, a part of which I have been since childhood. In particular my heart lies with future opportunities in Community Engagement & the ministry of ‘whole-person’ care!

I enjoy spending time with family and friends – sharing over a cuppa, walking and theatre visits, also reading and catching up on recommended films!

PCC

 
Jane Mata
Administrator: St Philip's church and Parish Communications

It's the best job, serving this lovely parish. My focus is particularly St Philip's church, and for the wider Parish I deal with publicity, communications & website, Electoral Roll and Youth, Children & Families admin.

You might find me running (slowly) or cycling in Tonbridge. With my husband Andy I enjoy music, galleries and long walks.

 

  The PCC, or Parochial Church Council, supports and advises the Vicar in the mission, worship and pastoral care of the Parish. It is also responsible for the finances of the Parish, and the care and maintenance of the buildings and contents in the Parish. The PCC is a Charity and its members are trustees of the Charity. The PCC and Vicar have a duty of care to ensure the safeguarding of the vulnerable in the church community.

The members of the PCC are the Clergy, Churchwardens and others elected by the Annual Parochial Church Meeting.
A list of the current members of our PCC can be found here
